This week flew by as I kept myself
pretty busy in the sewing room. I made some
great progress that I can't wait to share but,
right now, it's time for Shop Hop Show & Tell.
I hit all of these 11 shops on Friday
for a total of 425 miles.
I'll just share a couple pics.
A fabric is designed specifically for our shop hop.
Each shop creates its own quilt displaying the fabric
which always has a Kansas-theme to it.
Love the quilting this shop always displays!
A little fall fun.
This one is a BOM class. I was instantly attracted
to it because of the skates.
(Many moons ago, I did a little figure skating myself, lessons and all.)
Sadly, the class is full. Ah, well.
Stick to my own list of to-do's, right?
Excuse the bugs on my windshield but the sun was
setting on a great day just as I turned into our drive.
Home sweet home...
and now with a little more fabric in it!
Random bits for different things.
Just a little. I didn't go nuts or anything.
I found the fabrics on the right while on last year's hop;
as luck woud have it, I found even more of this line,
on the left, in the clearance racks this year at a different shop.
This is my most exciting find. I bought quite a bit of this.
I just love it all, and can't wait to figure out what to make with it!
Speaking of luck, I mentioned prizes, didn't I?
Every shop donates items to make up gift
baskets to be given away as door prizes,
along with a couple really overall big prizes.
I'm generally not a real lucky person but for some
reason, I have won a door prize more often than
not on these things--and that's out of thousands
Here's my prize haul.
Yes, I won again this year!
How does that happen??
Layer cake! All grays and blacks.
Fat quarter 6-pack of floral/bird fabrics.
Another 6 pack, 2 or 3 of which may work for Civil War fabrics--some day!
3 Christmas fat quarters
10 of these awesome Riley Blake Chevron fat quarters in all colors.
I have no idea what to do with them! How do you put these into a quilt?
I don't want to cut them up too much.
Some books, patterns and buttons
Charms and other fun things I can always use!
And all bundled up in an American tote bag.
I figure that more than pays for my gas, right!?
Not to mention the fun I had.
